Welcome to Episode 46! This week’s episode is a message I gave at Hope Church, called Filter Needed.
We are surrounded by a variety of messages from friends, television, the internet, and, yes, the movies. In this message, hear how you can use the Bible as a trusted filter to determine what is true and right in the many messages with which get.
When we go to the movies, two things try to get our attention:
Proverbs 9:13-17 The woman Folly is loud; she is seductive and knows nothing. 14 She sits at the door of her house; she takes a seat on the highest places of the town, 15 calling to those who pass by, who are going straight on their way, 16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!” And to him who lacks sense she says, 17 “Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
But he does not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol. ESV
- Twisted truths that are tempting
“Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
- Deceitful desires that are deadly
“But he does not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.”
Proverbs 9:3-6 Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!” To him who lacks sense she says, 5 “Come, eat
of my bread an drink of the wine I have mixed. 6 Leave your simple ways, and live, and walk in the way
of insight.” ESV
- Accurate perspective
“…and walk in the way of insight.”
- Fuller life
Proverbs 9:10-11The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is
insight. 11For by me your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life. ESV
Take wisdom to the movies to filter accurately.
